Smashbox Crystalized Cover Shot Palette
Today I’m sharing my review of the Smashbox Crystalized Cover Shot Palette. This was a collaboration palette between Smashbox and Bri Luna, better known as the Hood Witch. The luxe, crystalized compact includes a stunning range of shades from smoky quartz & jasper matte to rose quartz & garnet. Smashbox is proudly cruelty-free. The Crystalized Cover Shot Palette is cruelty-free but not vegan. Follow the Hood Witch on Instagram!

Smashbox Crystalized Cover Shot Palette Review
If you had told me that the Hood Witch’s Smashbox Crystalized Cover Shot Palette would be one that I would fall in love with immediately, I’d have been skeptical. I bought it because I loved the packaging and the Hood Witch. I wasn’t even sure what the colors would look like or if they’d work on me.
Let me tell you what I love about this palette. First and foremost, You’re Grounded is my perfect warm grey matte eyeshadow for my crease. It is the correct hue to make my eyes pop. I love it! Second, Heart Healer is an amazing lid and highlighting shade. I love it on the mobile lid if I’m creating a nudish eye, and it’s beautiful as a highlight under the brows or on the cheeks. And did I mention it’s a duochrome?
Third, Sage My Name is an excellent staple for setting my eyeshadow primer or erasing blending mistakes. Fourth, Light Twerker is such a beautiful duochrome. It’s a beautiful coral pink with hot pink shift. Fifth, Inner G is a gorgeous deep burgundy wine matte, also lovely in my crease and a staple color for me. Sixth, Hex Appeal is an amazing blue-black-gunmetal shade that looks beautiful with my new hair.
Seventh, All the Heals, is a beautiful blackened garnet metallic that looks great with Inner G, Light Twerker and Heart Healer. It truly has red tones to it, rather than being another boring brown.
Really, only Mystic Opportunity, which is a greenish gold, is the only color I’m not crazy about in the entire palette. It’s not bad, it’s just not a favorite of mine.
I love 7 out of 8 colors in this palette, which is a big deal for me. Normally I don’t love all the shades in a palette or find them wearable or workable. However, I’ve really been into small, tightly edited palettes such as the UD Aphrodisiac, Lime Crime Venus III, Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions, Smashbox Prism Cover Shot or the Natasha Denona Mini Lila.
You can come up with a few really cool color combos with this palette. Try Light Twerker on the lid with Inner G in the crease. Obviously I’m all about Heart Healer and You’re Grounded since this combo makes my blue-green eyes pop, but if you don’t like the grey, switch it out for All the Heals or Inner G. All the Heals or Inner G will bring out the green in green eyes. I suspect that Hex Appeal will steal the show if you use it all over with You’re Grounded as a transition color.
I know the Cover Shot palettes can be hit or miss, but this one is definitely a hit for me! I love the Smashbox Crystalized Cover Shot Palette so much that it’s the only eyeshadow palette I’m bringing with me on my trip to Sweden, as I believe it will have all the versatility that I need.
